Genderless Tokyo Youth

By Tara Martin

I looked up my own article and found this really interesting one from the Huffington Post titled: “Japanese Youth Are Fearlessly Embracing The Genderless Fashion Movement.” It’s about how Japanese youths are using fashion and style to transcend gender. Japan apparently had a “third gender” called wakashu before Western ideas were introduced. Many of those interviewed have received a lot of backlash from strangers, to family and friends. It’s really inspiring for me because they’ve dealt with other people’s judgments and harshness in such a positive way. They’ve learned not to be bothered by it or let what other people say slow them down. This is a really good message because now gender equality and acceptance is becoming more and more talked about. It’s important that we create a safer environment for everyone so we can continue to thrive.
